designed to help resolve issues that arise during that screening process. point of fact, it's only a small percentage of passengers who get patted down. nonetheless, i think we all understand the concerns americans have about that, it's something new. most americans are not used to a real law enforcement patdown like that. megyn: her comments coming just hours after president obama's top transportation security official urged angry airline passengers not to disrupt travel for millions of americans trying to get home to their loved ones for this holiday. and with airline travel up more than 11% this year, airline officials are already preparing a travel nightmare, preparing for a potential travel nightmare for the more than one and a half million passengers who are expected to fly. trace gallagher live in our west coast newsroom with more on this. t.g.? >> reporter: m.k., welcome
1:01 pm
back to you. you know, this is being called widely the scanner boycott, the body scanner boycott. you've heard some call them the porn scanners, it's being pushed by a couple of online groups, one is opt out, the other one is we won't fly. and what they're acing to opt out of the body scanners and go for the full-body patdown. they also want passengers to do these full-body patdowns in public so that the passengers and everybody can see how the tsa treats people. take a look at these numbers, megyn. 1.6 million people will fly this holiday weekend. there are 68 airports across the country that use these body scanners. the tsa estimates about 20% of travelers will use them. look at the bottom number, 320,000 passengers could be scanned. now, scanning takes about 10-12 seconds. the full-body patdown, according to the tsa web site, could take up to four or five minutes. even if 10% of people opt for that full-body patdown, you are
1:02 pm
talking about major delays at airports across the country. remember, flying is very much a domino effect thing. if you have delays at lax, chicago and jfk, that is the domino effect for the rest of the country. here is the head of tsa talking about this. listen. >> my concern, really, goes to all the vast majority of the traveling public who simply want to get home to enjoy the holidays with family and loved ones, and if they miss a flight because people are protesting, then i feel bad for them. >> reporter: and, of course, there are a lot of passengers who are going out willing to cause some commotion who are going to opt for these patdowns. we now have special underwear, megyn, that people are creating and, don't pert the don't touch my junk t-shirts. so people are going to go out of their way in some cases to make this difficult. the advice for everybody is, boy, this holiday weekend if you're traveling, you've got to allow yourself more time because
1:03 pm
it could potentially be a mess. [laughter] megyn: i can only imagine what's actually going to happen. trace gallagher, thank you. >> reporter: okay, megyn. megyn: well, those full-body scanners a major part of the controversy, and let's take a look at how the system has grown over the past year alone. the number of full-body scanners jumped from 40 at the start of 2010 to 373 this month. the tsa will have 500 installed by the end of the year, and it expects to have a total of 1,000 scanners installed by the end of 2011, so if you have not yet gone through one of these things, the odds are increasing that you soon will. and we have been getting a lot of reaction to this story over at where you can log on now and take our you decide question: do you intend to change your thanksgiving travel plans as a result of all this? really? do you? i'd be interested to hear about that myself, and you can offer the reasons, too, at go in, again, to and
1:04 pm
see how others are voting. well, police in berlin have closed parts of germany's historic parliament building because of worries about a possible terror attack. reports that al-qaeda operatives are inside germany planning a deadly attack on berlin's reichstag building. its glass-encased dome draws thousands of tourists and visitor every day. a spokeswoman says it will stay closed until further notice. al-qaeda brag about the success of its latest attempted attack. the terror group is talking about this. the attempted plane bombing using this printer cartridge. remember this? after the mayhem that these cargo bombs triggered a few weeks ago at airports overseas and here in the u.s. al-qaeda sees this as a winning strategy. national correspondent catherine herridge has more live in washington. >> reporter: thank you, megyn. the late rest edition of inspire magazine is specifically designed by al-qaeda in yemen, the same group that was behind
1:05 pm
the attempted christmas day bombing to attract american recruits. the magazine that has an american cargo jet on its cover states that the group's intent is to carry out more cargo bomb attacks in the future, and they believe it's possible in part because the bomb itself costs less than $5,000 to make. now, al-qaeda in yemen which claimed responsibility for the two devices is promising to spread the bomb technology to oh countries to al-qaeda affiliates who are you should the radar to launch more attacks in the future. now, it's questionable whether the technology can be transferred and how effective it is, but as we saw a few weeks ago, no blast -- even if there's no blast, you can also cripple the cargo system. here's the key paragraph in the magazine: our objective is not maximum kill, al-qaeda in yemen writes, but to cause a hemorrhage in the aviation industry, an industry that is so vital for trade and transportation between the u.s. and europe. the former secretary of homeland security, michael chertoff, told me recently he believes there
1:06 pm
has been a significant shift in strategy for al-qaeda in yemen to these smaller-scale attacks. it's harder for these groups to get operatives into the u.s., so al-qaeda in yemen is now turning to softer economic targets like cargo. megyn? megyn: catherine herridge, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. megyn: fox news alert, we are getting word right now that the fbi has raided the connecticut offices of two hedge funds as part of a far-reaching insider trading investigation that just broke. "the wall street journal" this morning reporting that the feds are looking into a number of consultants and traders across the one who raked in millions -- across the country who rakes in millions by getting the inside track on financial information. fox business senior corps 1307b89 charlie gasparino's been following this, he's got more on this. charlie, so first the news broke that there was a massive insider trading investigation underway, now we learn that the fbi has
1:07 pm
raided two hedge funds amidst this information. put it in interspective for us. >> reporter: well, actually, they've been looking at insider trading now pretty conservatively for about three years. over the last couple years they've been focusing on a case named galleon who they basically wiretapped and found he was getting inside information from other parties. that investigation, that galleon investigation sort of caused all these other investigations to crop up -- megyn: and that lets people, i mean, for people who don't follow this, it lets people game the system. they can make money on investments because they have inside information which is against the law. >> are well, material, nonpublic information, information that's not given generally to the public. i will say this, though, i'm still somewhat dubious about the size, scope and meaning of all this and the reason why is is because we are still talking about relatively small players. you know, the markets, there are other bigger issues affecting the markets, even if it's 20 of these small guys that run small hedge funds, whether they get
1:08 pm
some inside information. for example, we have the fed printing money, quantitate i have easing has taken interest rates could be to zero. -- down to zero. so, yes, this is interesting, it's important -- megyn: but i don't understand your point, that wall street's in trouble in a lot more ways than this? >> not even in trouble. that we're setting ourselves up, could be setting ourselves up for another 2008 financial implosion where there's massive amounts of risk taking because interest rates have been taken down so far -- megyn: and that encourages people to invest -- >> and to take enormous risks. to the average investor and to the guy who has money in a 401(k) account, that is more important. megyn: so what disease that mean -- does that mean as a practical matter? does that mean we're going to have another t.a.r.p.? another bank bailout? this you know what happened, they went to the feds, and they said, you can't let these banks fail. the entire financial system is going to fail, and the feds, us the taxpayer, stepped in to save wall street.
1:09 pm
>> what we're setting if stage for is another 2008. ben bernanke just printed $600 billion of new cash. meg meg that is the beauty of the printing press. [laughter] when you run out of the money, you just print more. it's like having a money tree in d.c. >> but that creates incentives in the markets where people take -- because interest rates are so low, you start taking risks, you start buying stuff that is more risky. that's what happened this led up to 2008. yes, this insider trading stuff, okay, interesting, big headlines, but if you're the average guy in my view, worry about this other stuff -- megyn: there's another major implosion headed our way that you need to worry ant. >> are listen, i love those stories, i cothem all the time. megyn: who's in favor of hedge funds unless you work for one? we are jealous of that. we like it when we hear -- isn't that the god's honest truth? who has sympathy for the hedge funds? this.
1:10 pm
>> well, their investors have sympathy. megyn: that's the problem. >> listen, i would just put -- megyn: let's get that on record. >> i do watch for the fox network, i would just put this in context. you know, bunch of hedge fund guys taking inside information, makes great headlines. but if you're an average investor, mom and pop, 401(k) money worrying about the future, worry about the fed creating money, worry about interest rates at historic lows more than this -- megyn: that's interesting because when you think about it, you think it's good for you. you know, if i want to buy a house, i'm going to get it at a better rate. >> we're going to cover this story, it's a good story, but i, you know, i work for the fox business network, we tend to put these things in perspective. the fed stuff is much more important. megyn: thank you. and charlie has a book that is just out. it is called "bought and paid for: the unholy alliance between obama and wall street." check it out, there it is right there, you can get it on
1:11 pm, i assume. >> yep. bookstores everywhere. megyn: charlie, thanks so much. i appreciate it. well, new concerns about the effort to fix america's growing debt problem. lou dobbs is next on the number one problem now facing all of americans and the solutions on the table and what it means for you. and a disturbing new report about the folks in charge of handling u.s. nukes. wait until you see what investigators discovered about some of the people who are actually working hands on with these things. stay tuned.

megyn: fox news alert, we are awaiting reaction now to this verdict in the khapbd ra levy murder trial. a jury finding tkpwraupbd r-r guilty of her murder black in 2001. it was suggested that gary condit a congressman at the time may have been involved in her disappearance, a claim that was later proven false and this illegal now found guilty of having attacked her as she was running while living in dc temporarily and working as an intern. the jury saying that man, murdered chandra levy. analysis by the "wall street
1:15 pm
journal" today showing that historically every increase in tax rates is followed by an increase in federal spending. how exactly does that work? lou dobbs is a syndicated radio host and soon to be. >> reporter: soon to be. megyn: star of the fox business network. have you started yet? >> reporter: i think i started. megyn: i was in italy last week. >> reporter: i know i started. i wasn't in italy. had i been fortunate enough -- i've been fortunate enough to talk with a lot of folks. i'm so excited about being on the fox business network i can't stand it. megyn: we are happy to have you on our sister network. basically the report says it's great, okay we need to tax a little bit more and we need to reduce spending, but the "wall street journal" in an article says, hold on, because historically they say when you look at the number of dollars the feds pull in from increased
1:16 pm
taxes, they then out spend that, they take it and instead of putting it toward the deficit and the debt they actually go out and spend it. >> reporter: with the exception of 1999 and 2000 we've been running a deficit in this government throughout the last 40 years. i mean it is on it's face it's absurd to suggest that raising taxes fixes the problem, or significantly reduces the deficit. yet that is precisely what is under discussion by two of these groups, the first the president's debt reduction commission suggesting well the way to solve this is to simply go to 21% spending, 21% of gdp for spending, 21% of gdp for taxation. it is the beginning of a serious conversation. but what is interesting to me, megyn in both instances, they are talking to everyone but the american people. this message from the midterm election should be clear and
1:17 pm
unee kweuf call to everyone in every political party in the country, tea party, republican party, democratic party, whatever, go to the people and get their voices, get their thinking. megyn: we know how the tea party stands. tea stands for taxed enough already. they don't want more taxes. what the debt commission is saying, is we're sorry, we have to. go are going to get rid of the mortgage interest deduction, a charitable deduction. they are going to get rid of a lot of deductions that are loved. they say we have to do it and cut federal spending otherwise we'll spend even more. now we spend 17% of every dollar toward paying down the debt. they are saying it's going to go up higher. >> reporter: and it will, and let's examine what they said in addition to that. that is how will they enforce the recommendations? not a single word about enforcing those recommendations, or levels of spending or levels of taxation. this is an important
1:18 pm
conversation. alan simpson the former senator from wyoming, ersking bowles, former chief of staff. megyn: they want this. >> reporter: they chaired these recommendations, and they are simply that, they are not, not, i repeat not correct when they say you have to do this. this is still america. we are not ruled by elites. megyn: the political reality is no one is going to touch soegts security, ansocialsecurity, andh medicare. until they do that where are they going to cut. >> reporter: may i introduce economic recovery. we are headed to 100% gdp. megyn: everything the entire country earn is going to be spent on servicing the debt. >> reporter: the economic reality is that's not sustainable and the political reality is not sufficient to overwhelm the economic. we will feel the consequences of the decisions taken for the past 40 years. >> who has the guts to do that.
1:19 pm
you saw paul ryan come out, a republican from wisconsin and say here is a plan to touch the third rail of politics, medicare, social security. he was ignored by the democrats and republicans as well. paul who? i didn't see it i don't know what you're talking about. >> reporter: there is nothing magical about paul ryan or his recommendations. they are unhe'll list particular, inadequate and in my opinion so insufficient as to not bear -- megyn: paul ryan's. >> reporter: absolutely. >> what is the answer then? >> reporter: the answer is for 0 us to begin to understand these are the realities we must confront. we will be rolling back social security. we will be rolling back medicare. we will be reducing federal spending, not out of ideological purposes or reasons or philosophical. this nation in 2010 cannot afford it. and we must come to terms with that, period. megyn: that is not going to happen. i mean it just doesn't seem like
1:20 pm
it's going to happen politically. >> reporter: you may be correct politically. megyn: let's assume i'm right. they don't have the guts for that down in washington and maybe the american people aren't behind it either because they don't believe it could get worse. >> reporter: 40% of the american people are behind it. megyn: let's assume it's not going to happen it. the politicians in washing attorney not talking about, this is not even on the table your proceed proceedings al, the kind of drastic reductions. >> reporter: this isn't a proposal this is an economic reality. megyn: what is going to happen as the debt grows and all of our money goes towards servicing it? >> reporter: first of all that won't happen, sufficient money will continue to go. think about this, half, half of every dollar in this economy right now is going to the public sector. half of the money to support programs and entitlements, local, state, federal government. that is unsustainable. we must have private capital in a private economy to drive this free enterprise cap ta lis
1:21 pm
economy forward. that is noas soon as the partieo terms with what they are saying for the first time. deficit reduction is the number one issue in the hearts and minds of the american people. what washington doesn't understand they will ultimately comprehend, because november 2nd wasn't a sufficient advisory, i assure you that november 2012 will be. megyn: i always think of that sl video, and he's sitting in a circle and he's taking their toys. and the little babies are crying and he says, i need that, you have to support me. sort of indicative of where we're heading in this country where we older folks are taking from the next generation. at some point something will have to be done. >> reporter: or it will be done to us. megyn: for the g ark ls and viewers who were in italy last week. what time canee we see you.
1:22 pm
>> reporter: we are working on the show right now. we've just begin meetings. we will have a show up and rolling by the first quarter of next year. megyn: that is exciting, cool we're looking forward to it, lou dobbs everybody. new reports today about some on the job drinking concerns involving federal workers who transport our nuclear weapons. yes, you heard right the details in three minutes. plus, if the drug war wasn't enough to worry you, wait until you see the new worry on the border, new details on who might be taking advantage of an open door. >> one of the suspects is in custody. >> we have everybody. we have everybody.

1:27 pm
actually transporting nuclear weapons. >> reporter: yeah, these guys were. i mean that is kind of a problem, right? these are hired by the government, there are 600 agents in all and they are hired to carry nuclear republicans and nuclear components from place to place, sometimes around the country. and what happens is they are highly trained, each person goes through extensive training on how to drive these weapons. there is also a 21-week course on what they would do to prevent sabotage, to prevent the weapons from being stolen or taken over. imagine the security that is at stake here. now the u.s. department of energy, the watchdog, issues a report that says, in 2007 to 200916 different alcohol-related incidents. in other words, the agents were as you said getting drunk on the job. for example, if 2007 during an extended mission an agent was arrested for public intoxication. in 2009 two agents were
1:28 pm
handcuffed and detained by cops after an incident in a local bar. now the report says, appropriate action was taken against all these agents, though they do not say what the action was. they did go onto say and i'm quoting here, in our judgment alcohol incidents such as these, as infrequent as they may be, indicate a potential vulnerability in the office of secure transportations critical national security mission. you think? the rule here is ten hours from bottle to throttle or in this case, bottle to pedal. apparently there was violated 16 times those years. as you said it's not like they were driving nukes around. megyn: you listed those on your full screen, public intoxication, that was while they were on the job they had those arrests. >> reporter: yes, this is what happens. they drive these things across the country and help put the nuclear weapons in a secure area, and then they go out.
1:29 pm
but they are not supposed to go out and drink. and they went out and they drank. megyn: because they might get called back, i mean or are they kind of done. >> reporter: they are done for temporarily, just quick like stays, quick over stays. megyn: you transport nuclear weapons across the country, you get them to their destination safely, maybe you need a cocktail. >> reporter: if you get the weapons to the destination and you don't have to drive the nukes any more then you deserve a cocktail. if you're still driving the nukes, no cocktail. megyn: ten hours from bottle to throttle. thank you. is the federal government hoping for technology that would block your cellphone while you're driving? is uncle sam going to step in now? new details today on reports that the department of transportation is hoping to see cell-blocking hardware installed in american cars. how about that? plus a massive manhunt is underway in utah right now. authorities are searching for a suspect in the shooting of a park ranger.

1:35 pm
going to do it, i'm going to run. now you have the former first lady barbara bush when she was asked about palin coming out and adding at the end that she thinks palin should stay in alaska, dick. what do you make of it? >> i think we were very lucky to have her on the ticket in 08. i hope she is on the ticket in 12. i think barbara bush is very astute from a political standpoint, i know she exit's the base but i don't think she'll get beyond the base. she spent the last year or two years making a lot of money because of her celebrities making speeches. she has her daughters on "dancing with the stars." if we want an attractive, vapid woman with opinions that don't make any sense i'm for kim kardashian. megyn: ouch, brad. there is nothing wrong with having a tkuts on "dancing with the stars" and nothing wrong with making money. the question is, can she win? it's surprising to see our former first lady, the wife of
1:36 pm
george w. bush take a shot at her. >> i know barbara bush. you never stop talking with mrs. bush, walk away and say, i wonder what she meant by that? megyn: i wish she would share her thoughts more. >> her father with us a u.s. senator. husband was president, son was a president, two sons are senators. she has a good ear to the ground on politics. i think what she is saying to sarah palin is you might be too exposed. you have to be selected by the party before you're elected by the people. there is going to be a lot of choice in 2012, everybody has a right too run but maybe you're not the right person at the right time to lead our party. i think that's what she was saying. megyn: what do you make of the fact -- this one is for you, brad, romney leads obama 45 to 44%. huckabee is neck-and-neck, obama
1:37 pm
has 46%, huckabee 44. again we showed in the introduction that obama is sale eight points over sarah palin. >> they are two polar ricing figures, obama and palin. to be elected in this country you need independents. they must come your way. they are less likely to support palin i think. they are looking for a more centuri st candidate. that will be her challenge, being selected by the party and if you're fortunate enough to do that to be elected by the people. megyn: do you think independents are looking for more of a cent, r-rbg ist candidate, they had one last time, with all due respect to john mccain he got clobbered. in this midterm election it didn't seem to be all about the centurists, it seemed to be about the conservatives from the right. >> we've seen this battle within the republican party between the jim demint's and the lisa murkowski's, very bits words in "the new york times," very bits
1:38 pm
words between the two of them. one of them is for earmarks, one of them is against, one of them is moderate, one of them is very much to the right, demint is. i think sarah palin is the very right wing piece of the republican party that did very well in republican primaries. they won a number of primaries. the witch up in delaware. megyn: she made a whole commercial about how that is not true. >> i'm sorry, reformed witch up in delaware who got the republican nomination, and, you know, i think demint was five-five, in a number of races the republicans could have taken control of the senate but for that tea party radical right. and she is that tea party radical part. we are loving it. the schizophrenia with the republican party, anyone who has this kind of mental illness going on in their party has to be good for us. megyn: it's hard to get behind the veneer and know what dick is
1:39 pm
thinking. >> i tell you what, you got your butts kicked a few weeksing a. now you're saying the republicans really didn't do too well because they didn't take the senate. our policies are the ones that won the day. you guys got kicked to the curb. megyn: and on the butt kicking remark let me ask you about this sound byte. he raises an interesting point and where the republican party is going to come out whether they go conservative, true, true conservative or more moderate in the mold of like a mccain, for example. and george will, who was on the sunday shows yesterday on abc news took a shot at sarah palin as well and you're seeing more and more sort of the mainstream republicans not supporting this potential candidate. here is george will. >> after the 2008 campaign she had two things she had to do. she had to go home to alaskan study and she had to govern alaska well. instead she quit halfway through her first term and shows up in the audience of dancing with the
1:40 pm
stars and other distinctly nonpresidential venues. megyn: again with the "dancing with the stars." they are daughter is there. if your kids on "dancing with the stars" in the finals i guess you go. putting that to the side, brad, why, why is it that these sort of establishment republicans continue, you know, to shun her? >> i think the reason being most importantly, you heard george will lead off with it is she quit being governor. the excuse she gave. megyn: she was laboring under all these ethical investigations that turned out to be totally bogus. megynbogus. >> that's when you big in and fight back, you don't give up. that is nonsense. we believe she was he elected by the people of alaska to serve the people of alaska, she should have served out her term. you don't runaway. you stand there and fight. she was in the right. she certainly could have overcome the issues leveled against her and it would have made her stronger for it. the simple fact is she left the governorship and she became a millionaire overnight. she is fantastic lee received around the country. megyn: what is wrong with that.
1:41 pm
she comes from a humble background, she didn't have a lot of money. she has the five children, one of whom is special needs, you don't usually make a lot of dough as a public figure. what is wrong with saying i can't govern i'm under so many ethical investigations that are not legitimate. i'll going to do alaska a favor and have someone who can govern without all this. yes i'll maybe some money. >> i agree with brad. she told the people of alaska she was going to be their governor for four years and quit to cash in on her celebrity. i said kim kardashian earlier joking but there is a lot of comparison. what does paris hilton do? what does sarah palin do other than give up and give a speech and take a positions. she has accomplished nothing. she accomplished nothing -- megyn: the governor of alaska, that's nothing? she had record approval ratings in her state before she ran.
1:42 pm

1:46 pm
megyn: new evidence of big new developments with north korea's nuclear program. those new facts are raising fresh concerns for the united states and our allies. a top u.s. envoy and other diplomats holding an emergency meeting in that region following north korea's claims it has
1:47 pm
secretly built a uranium facility. that program is being called by the united states disappointing and pre srobg ka tiff. john bolton is a former ambassador to the united nations and a fox news contributor. they basically bragged about it. they built it in secret and call over and american scientist and show it off to the guy, showing how they have 2,000 centrifuges now and parade it in front of him and say it's all for energy purposes, we swear it has nothing to do with our nuclear program. so what are they up to? >> reporter: they are obviously continuing to expand their nuclear weapons program. the problem the united states faces is for more than 15 years we have followed an obviously failed policy, pa polic that poy trying to see if we could negotiate north korea out of their pursuit of nuclear weapons. it follows a pattern. the north koreans are very, very good at this. they pledged to give up their
1:48 pm
nuclear weapons. the united states pledges political and economic support. they keep building nuclear weapons and we supply them with subsidies. that happens over and over again. in part what the north koreans are doing is raising the broad price so the hope has to be that the obama administration doesn't fall into the same trap as previous administrations and think there is some way of chitchatting north korea out of its nuclear weapons. megyn: you are the perfect person to ask this question of. whenever you walk to diplomates they give you a lecture on, you can't understand. they can't just be clobbered over the head with, stop it or else. it's a very diplomatic. >> reporter: it's complex. megyn: careful dance you have to go to to get china in particular to put the pressure on and you can't do it unilaterally. none of us get how to ma anyplace hrat north korea. >> reporter: that's good, you should work at the state department. this is something we have been trying for over 15 years, and it
1:49 pm
continues to fail. so at some point even those who have advocated in the past should realize that it's not working and try something else. the real answer is that the north korean threat is not going to go away until north korea goes away. megyn: what do they have to do bomb somebody? >> reporter: they are getting close to it. north korea is a criminal state. it would sell one of these nuclear weapons that it presently possesses to al-qaida or anyone else with the hard currency. they are cooperating with iran as they have for many years with ballistic missiles and i think almost certainly on nuclear weapons. and we have had our head in the sands for lo these 15 years. megyn: what as a practical matter -- if you're running this country, as you would like to do, perhaps, john bolton may be a presidential candidate soon, if you're running this country, what do you do, you have iran, north korea, you have yemen now, you can't just bomb everybody. >> reporter: no, but i would -- let's take north korea to start
1:50 pm
with. i would not subsidize them, not give them assistance, i would not sit down at the six party talks, i would not sit down bilaterally. i would go to china and say look, north korea is going to be unified one day, the division of the peninsula is unnatural. you say you don't want north korea to have nuclear weapons yet you're not willing to pressure the regime. let's talk about what we do and what may be a very short period of time when kim jong-il finally dies. megyn: i need a quick hance i have to go. doesn't china say to us, shut up, we own you. >> reporter: i don't think so, in any event i don't think that would be a response that ought to deter us. if we're willing to back down because of china's debt then they really do onus. we've got to stand up for our interests and that means a policy that finds a way to reunify the two koreas and gets rid of the north korea nuclear weapon. megyn: it reminds me of the comment that hillary clinton made about how the national debt poses national security implications we should pay attention to.
1:51 pm
ambassador john bolton, thank you sir. >> reporter: thank you. megyn: there is new technology that could completely stop you from using your cellphone while you drive. is the government pushing to see that installed in every american car? new details next on why this is suddenly a very hot issue. conservative radio talk show host kill yam kelly, no relation caught in a verbal scuffle with jay levine. was this a move to protect rahm emanuel in his may mayi yorial race? straight ahead. what soup can do.™

1:56 pm
web page. what i sully said was there is a lot of technology out there now that can disable phones and we are looking at that. a number of cell technology innovators came to our distracted driving summit here in washington and presented their technology, and that's one way. but you have to have good laws, you have to have good enforce 0ment and you have to have people take personal responsibility. that's the bottom line. you left this off your web page and i'm quoting. i think it will be done, i think the technology is there and i think you're going to see the technology become adaptable in automobiles to disable these cell phones. we need to do a lot more if we are going to save lives. just a fact check, you did say that. will they do that, still unclear, megyn. megyn: interesting. all right trace, thank you. thousands of doctors and seniors are facing one very big risk when it comes to this healthcare overall, and congress has electric had a chance to fix it

2:26 pm
it's in the good that women can't cry publicly without being perceived as weak and men when they deign to shed a few tears get mocked. >> she had to make a stronger statement than a man would have had to make. she knows if thee were to do the things you suggested she would probably be mercilessly mocked because she is a woman. she took a stand as the first woman speaker. megyn: you might have pursuaded me. but the business which you add on the end -- she says, if i were to cry for anything i would cry for the american people and the policies they are about to face. >> i'll start crying any minute. megyn: the right wing blowing wg

[ female announcer ] certain genetic factors and some medicines, such as prilosec, reduce the effect of plavix leaving you at greater risk for heart attack and stroke. your doctor may use genetic tests to determine treatment. don't stop taking plavix without talking to your doctor as your risk of heart attack or stroke may increase. people with stomach ulcers or conditions that cause bleeding
2:30 pm
should not use plavix. taking plavix alone or with some other medicines, including aspirin, may increase bleeding risk, so tell your doctor when planning surgery. tell your doctor all medicines you take, including aspirin, especially if you've had a stroke. if fever, unexplained weakness or confusion develops, tell your doctor promptly. these may be signs of ttp, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition, reported sometimes less than 2 weeks after starting plavix. other rare but serious side effects may occur. my professor at berkeley asked me if i wanted to change the world. i said "sure."

2:33 pm
republicans take control of the house in a few weeks. and guess what else happens in the temporary band-aid on a gaping medicare problem will get ripped off. it turns out the fix will run out on january 1. basically a four-week fix. and doctors will face a 23% medicare payment cut unless something is done. guess what that means for their senior patients? you were talking to me about this a couple weeks ago. long and short of it is, republicans and dem krats have been putting off this fix for years. doctors get a huge medicare payment cut and every year the congress has to pass an emergency. it's not that they care but the seniors, they care about the
2:34 pm
seniors who vote. republicans and democrats have punted it. then they got to the healthcare. then they said we take that out. >> there was a deal made with president obama that white coat ceremony saying we have a deal. doctors you should love it, seniors you should love it. we are getting the permanent senior fix. they said forget that we'll deal with that later. well the permanent fix was supposed to come. you have got four weeks. you got a four-week fix and you say what? >> that doesn't reassure me. the problem is doctors are permanently nervous. what's going to happen next? a one-month fix? seniors, 1946, the baby boomer generation is just now starting to come to medicare.
2:35 pm
7-8 million baby boomers are coming to medicare. but what do they have to look forward to if they don't have the doctors to see. 70% of doctors before obama care came in were starting to limit their medicare practice. hip replacements are only paying $900. cataracts, $900. doctors cannot afford to work under this. there is no chance they can afford to take a 23% cut. megyn: are you allowed to say no to medicare patients? >> not officially. but i can do it unofficially. i can limit the size of my practice. i can say to my office manager we are full today, i can't see that patient for three months. we know seniors though we love our seniors have many, many more medical problems and we have more technology to treat them with. congressman paul ryan has an
2:36 pm
interesting idea everyone is ignoring. the wealthy are getting the same subsidy as the poor and the sick. why do they get it? that's where medicare should get its money from. megyn: they say even though they passed a 4-week fix, they say they would like to make it permanent but they won't do it because the reason the democrats and republicans kept punting is they don't have the money to pay for it. so what's going to happen? >> doctors are the horses that pull the cart. doctors will continue to drop out of medicare. the medicare payment advisory committee said 28% of seniors couldn't find a new doctor for medicare. this is not a happy future. another thing is hospitals are going to take over here. hospitals have a different bottom line than private practice dock pores. a private practice doctor like
2:37 pm
